Excitement is building in our Lower Elementary class as students prepare for their field trips to Ellis Island. The classes will visit next week and enjoy the Statue Cruises Ferry ride from Liberty State Park.
Students will spend the day in nature and learn about the rich history of the island and the many immigrants who once passed through to call America their home.
Regular field trips are an important part of our curriculum and extend learning beyond the classroom walls. Students visit the Hudson River in our backyard as a science lab, and our older students experience overnight camps. It's a short walk to Liberty State Park where students go birding or learn about the park's ecosystem and other park wildlife.
These activities are woven into our Lower Elementary program and offer students a real understanding of the world around them. This educational experience inspires teamwork, leadership, and self-confidence.
